$1000 for a pile of crap. 16 months old Every error under the sun, taken back to the supplier and they can't find anything. It is like a great wall version of the washing machine world.

Purchased in January 2020 at RetraVision for $999.00.

Simpson washer swt8043

published

I’ve owned this washer for just under 2 year and for the last month I am constantly getting black oil/dirt on my washer.
It doesn’t clean our clothes. Worse washer I’ve ever owned.
My last. Simpson lasted 20 years, that’s why I ended up buying another. But I would never recommend this one

Mega problems with this machine after 1 year...don't purchase...many error messages on screen from E10 to E80 and lid locking with clothes in it! Service to home slow and unhelpful, waited 5 days for replacement baud. Electronic bauds replaced twice but had to pay for call out fee and now another similar issue. NOT HAPPY and won't purchase ever again.

Faulty heap of ....

published

It does wash clothes although it is extremely noisy and in the last 2 years I have had it I have had the tub supply water hose replaced 3 times and according to Harvey Norman anything that needs to be replaced 3 times is classed as a major failure and should be replaced with a new one but no being 2 months out of warranty Electrolux/Simpson replaced the part for free but won’t replace the faulty machine only a matter of time before it happens again

Purchased at Harvey Norman for $900.00.

Dreadful washing machine

published

This is such a bad washing machine and disappointing to write this as always had this brand and been very happy. It would seem that the quality is just not there anymore. Have had several service calls to the house and even taken to the warehouse for repair. Not only returned scratched in many places but still have very bad noise and don't even get me started on the lint collector (does not work). Sadly have to say look at other brands for washing machines as you will be disappointed if you purchase this one. Not happy!!

The washing machine is so useful in daily needs, easy to use, economical as well. The durability is awesome, I’ve never had any issue since I had it. I highly recommend it.

Cheap hoses - not made to last

published

Ever since having this machine, it never did a particularly great job at washing clothes. One month after the 2 year warranty ended, machine started leaking enormous amounts of water from underneath at the start of the cycle while filling water into the machine. A broken hose leaking inside the machine was found to be the cause. Cheap nasty quality. Avoid as the hose isn't made to last - could they make it any thinner?

Is it common for the electrics to just die on the Simpson's machines?

I've had mine just over three years and all of the cycles take over two hours to run through. Maybe the next step is for the electronics to die like yours.
